Just a little tip for anyone who uses these plans...
I was planning on making my stand 40" tall to make it easier to see while standing up. I accounted for the 2x6" base, and the 2x4 top, and decided to make my legs (the 8 2x4s - purple) 30" tall. I need 8 of these so I figured... 30x4=120 which is a 2x4x10'. This did not work, some of you may already see where I am going with this...
Indeed, the math adds up but it doesn't take into consideration the 'cuts' you make. The width of the blade would have left me with 3 30" pieces and a 29" and some odd fraction. Long story short, I made the legs 29 1/2" long. That left me with about 2 inches extra, better safe than sorry!
I got the bottom frame completed, the top frame completed, and all the other major cuts done. I am trying to upload a picture off my cellphone but I don't have good service here.
I had a 10% off a purchase of $50 or more at Lowes so I got the following:
2 - 16x45" Laminated 'shelves' (3/4" MDF) - **Note, they are not exactly 16" wide, like they state... LOL!
3 - 2x4x10'
2 - 2x4x8'
1 - 2x6x10'
1 - 4'x8' 1/4" Birch Plywood - had them cut it in half (for the sides and front)
If any of you are wondering the cost... $48.03 after tax and coupon
I also had my eye on some trim for it, kind of like a taller baseboard but with more grooves. I also found a casing that looked really nice that I am going to put around the top, flush with the top board.
I'm rather excited to get this project off and running! Hopefully on Thursday I will have some free time to finish up the building, and maybe Monday paint it.
I will post back with anymore tips
